I had a great article dropped into my email from some friends/bible teachers by Coach Daubemire. What he wrote was awesome. Still, when I read it, I thought of many great teachers, good points,good views on this or that . . . on belief.
Suddenly it felt as if God was pointing out how we so often complicate it all.
It isn't that the law is not important. It isn't that grace does not exist. It isn't that there are now no gifts of the spirit, or even that He still does miracles today. It isn't even that He does not want to move the same way He did when He walked the earth, or how He had the apostles operating when He went on to be with the Father.
He longs for us to know that He is. He calls us to be in realtionship with Him. Then He asks us to serve Him bny walking out His purpose in this life- so that others might have the realization that He is, so that they might come into relationship with Him and so they might walk out His purpose here so that yet others might know Him . . .
Yet day after day we get so busy. Even people hungry for God can get caught up in this or that, sometimes even "God stuff". Then sometimes, we miss Him. We just just simply miss Him.
It's like a funnel, . . . our being, our family, our plight, or our church or what our ministry is doing . . .
Down to the brass tacks----------------------
"MY" shadow should heal people as I pass just as Paul's did! Not because the me of me, but because of the Him in me and because my walk with Him should be THAT close.
We tend to overcomplicate things. We put our spin on what we think about this or that.
Sometimes we are so busy searching or looking for answers or explanations or the next trend in life or church---- that we don't often hear when He softly speaks one . . .
Yet then we wonder why our kids aren't saved yet, or when our neighbors are ever going to come to know Christ.
What are we doing?
No, . . . what am I doing, because we all walk out our own salvation with fear and trembling.
I do know this. any people get more knowledge and more knowledge and actually become quite bright in a lot of things.
However, all the education or even "God knowledge" in the world will do nothing if we rest on our laurels or stay in our houses or look in a tunnel that never ventures out into the fields . . .
I wonder, . . . am I merely a white washed fence----neither here nor there, but looks pretty good at a glance?
Or am I daughter of the King, nade for such a time as this?!
-Who is commissioned to go ye therefore out into ALL the world and spread the good news?!?!?!?!
Signs and wonders follow belivers.
That was not just for then.
& There are still a lot of people who do not yet know He is. So should there be any day that that isn't first and foremost in my mind and heart?
& If there is, where am I? Am I really His?
